Community Hall Newtown

Project Brief

Design Details and philosophy : Situated in heart of new town, challenge was to keep the essence of traditional architecture intact. Site surrounded by roads on three sides is focused upon use of open interactive spaces through its traditional landscape elements. Building comprising banquet hall, guest residences, rooftop plaza and multipurpose gathering space is an urban mirror of contemporary architecture, linking the roots of tradition to the modernism. Focus upon depiction of local art through painted louvers and terracotta walls are designed to be the points of accentuation. The curved terracotta wall is making the intangible space tangible through its introvert design. The oval building forms the heart of support facility which includes recreational facilities such as cafeteria and play areas. The curved wall is breaking the monotony of rectilinear grid and creates an organic design merging with the landscape.
